Deschutes River- Lower - Maupin, OR

by The Fly Fishers Place

Well, this is a great time of year on the Deschutes.?? Trout fishing is picking up now that the weather is cooler.?? Steelhead are viable from the Mouth all the way up to Trout Creek with a few being hooked above Trout Creek too.?? Nymphing for trout with a 6 wt is a good idea because you may hook a Steelie and having a little extra "wood" to lay on 'em helps.?? Keep an eye out for Fall hatches.????
